He's seen all their sins, their adulteries, their shame.
And yet He begs... "Will you be made clean? When?"
He had made this people to be a glory to Him and a praise to His name. To be with Him forever.
But they turn away. They won't listen to Him. They think they're strong. They don't see their need.
He pleads and He warns. If they do not change. He will have to punish them. But only as much as is necessary for them to see their weakness and His strength.
Because His glory shines best in darkness;
His power seen best in the night.
